A woman who was wanted in court last week in connection to a gun related case, has turned herself in. Antonia Bautista-Dalson, pleaded guilty after being arrested over the summer for being an accomplice to Negie Fallis. She showed up in court in October, but not last Monday for sentencing. Round Valley Tribal Police say she called them Friday and agreed to meet them at the Covelo substation of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. Her crime connected to an investigation into the disappearance of Khadijah Britton in February. Britton’s family says she was last seen with Fallis who had her at gunpoint. The Mendocino Voice also reports Fallis had was previously arrested for allegedly beating Britton with a hammer.

Three projects in the works for restoration of wetlands. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife awarded more than 4 million dollars for the agency’s 2017 Wetlands Restoration for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Program Proposal Solicitation Notice. The money for projects that help reduce GHG in wetlands and watersheds and benefitting other areas like enhancing fish and wildlife habitat, protecting and improving water quality and quantity, and helping California adapt to climate change. One of the projects a meadow habitat for the South Yuba River Citizens League. The next for the Elkhorn Slough Foundation for work on one of the largest estuaries in California. And finally for the Sierra Fund in the Red Clover Valley.

Another unfortunate delay for the Dungeness crab season. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife reports this is about two weeks worth of waiting due once again to higher levels of domoic acid. So now we’re looking at a Jan. 15th start. The quality tests are done for the Tri-State Coastal Dungeness Commercial Fishery. They were supposed to happen this week, but apparently there were rough ocean conditions so ships couldn’t safely deploy and retrieve crab traps. They have to test crabs for meatiness, to make sure they’re ready to be harvested. The delays are only in Mendocino, Humboldt and Del Norte counties.

A scam out of the Lake County Jail. The FBI’s investigating the illegal use of the jail’s inmate phone system to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Lake County Board of Supervisors got wind of the crimes the D-A says add up to about $300,000 or more. Also on their agenda the supervisors mulling a report by the D-A after Supervisor Rob Brown accused him of improper spending, something D-A Don Anderson says was just a personal attack by Brown. And Brown motioned for a restriction on Anderson’s spending, but it wasn’t seconded. Anderson to be out of office soon anyway. In Anderson’s report he blames for the vendetta because he launched the investigation into the jail phone crimes saying it involved friends of Brown’s. Anderson claims a minimum of 30 inmates were making free calls and illegally skirting fees. It’s a confusing case of he said she said, you can pick it up at the Record Bee’s website…
